La Crosse City Clerk: Signatures insufficient to force recall

Posted:

LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - La Crosse City Clerk Teri Lehrke rules Friday that petition signatures to recall City Council member Audrey Kader are insufficient to force a recall.

Lehrke released a statement says in which she says after careful examination of the petition it contained 104 qualifying signatures. 

In order to force the recall, supporters need 158 signatures from people living in Kader's 11th District.

Lehrke says she based her ruling on guidance from the state's Government Accountability Board and state statutes related to the recall of local officials.

Recall supporters now have five days to respond to Lehrke's decision.
